Will two hundred megabytes bring me health, happiness and prosperity?

Is 200 MB enough? I got an Ipod Touch for my birthday. It does have WiFi access but I don't want to have to run into a cafe every time I need to look something up online. So I'm in the market for a mobile WiFi hotspot and a wireless data plan. The cheapest plans available -- and I'm all about the cheap -- typically offer you c. 200 MB a month.

My question is: is this amount enough to cover light daily internet usage? Or would I run out by the middle of the month? Let's assume for the sake of argument that typical internet usage for me would be looking up addresses and telephone numbers, looking up online reviews, checking out the news, the occasional VOIP call and the very occasional text.
Is the cheap 200 MB plan enough to fulfill those needs or should I spring for the more expensive multi-gigabyte plans?
Many thanks in advance.
